Removing Games & links

Looking at the attached pic, I know how to remove the links to the games under the Game Providers list (which happen to be WildTangents webgames that came pre-installed on my Toshiba laptop) by going through the registry; but are these actually installed on the laptop or are they JUST links?

WildTangents games that come from OEMs are trial games and also known as Adware . Slows your PC down .

Figured it out & removed all traces of the games & links.

There are a few others I'm going to look over to decide whether/not to keep:
Club Penguin, Dark Orbit, Seafight, Shaiya & WOW.

Club Penguin I believe is part of Wild Tangent . WOW isn't thats a game you purchase or download as a trial . Doesn't come with PCs

WOW came pre-installed on my laptop, I didn't have to buy it.
Here's what I get when I open it: https://us.battle.net/account/creation/wow/signup/
Seems to be a trial for the Starter Edition. I may try it out later, not a big online game player myself though.

Most OEMs have game trials . Some of them could be adware some of them are legit. I'm not a game person myself . I find them boring on PCs .
